When people read my Breville BOV900BSS review they get disappointed. The reason is that many of them found my BOV900BSS review on this amazing Smart Oven Air appliance too late.
They have already invested in a sub-standard convection toaster oven and found out the hard way that it has significant limits when compared to an appliance like the Breville Smart Oven Air.
Breville’s Smart Oven Air Fryer is like no other and you can safely assume that it is so much more than just a standard Breville toaster oven.
Not only does this countertop toaster oven do 9 slices of bread consecutively, it can also cook anything a large kitchen oven can produce. In fact the number of functions this smart oven can perform will absolutely amaze you.
Get rid of the oils and start air frying
Let’s start with the fact it is an air fryer. It can fry seafood, spring rolls, zucchini fries, eggplant, apple turnovers, chicken wings and anything else you like with the advantage that it does not need a bucket of boiling oil to do the frying.
No need to go to the local fish and chips restaurant for a meal anymore as the seafood cooked in the Breville smart oven air fryer is as delicious as you will get anywhere.
Healthy dehydrated snacks
The Breville countertop oven can dehydrate practically any fruit or vegetable or product that has some form of water inside. Think of produce like apricots, apples, nuts, oranges, pumpkin, and any vegetable you like to crunch on.
Your dehydrated food can accompany other items, such as a cracker can be used for a dip, or dehydrated pineapple pieces can be added as a cake topper on a hummingbird cake.
In fact the dehydrating function provides wonderful healthy options when it comes to snacks for you and your family. It makes school lunch options a breeze.
Bake and slow cook all your favorite meals
It can proof as well, meaning you can cook amazing loaves of bread, lightweight scones and all sorts of delicious recipes.
If you like to prepare your meals in advance, it has a slow cooking setting so you can slow cook your favorite recipes while you are busy doing other things.
It also has a 12 cup muffin tray. That’s almost moving into a commercial kitchen oven arena. In fact if you had a small kitchen based business, this would be a wonderful starter oven to begin your cooking business with.
Did anybody say pizza?
Yes, it is also a pizza toaster oven with a 13 inch pizza tray included. The tray fits nice and easily inside allowing the clever Element IQ to cook any type of pizza you could dream up. Whether you decide to make a fresh pizza or just grab one from the freezer, the Breville BOV900BSS will cook either option perfectly. It’s genius.
Create the perfect cookies every time
If cookies or biscuits are your thing, step on up as you can make the most heavenly delicious gooey cookies simply with the push of a pre-set dial. You can also bake and cook automatically with the phase cooking setting.
The 13 functions of the Breville BOV900BSS is what makes it stand out from many appliances in the same category, and here they are:
- TOAST quantity and quality toast, that’s why it is called the Breville 9 slices toaster oven
- BAGEL if you like it crunchy on the inside and cooked on the outside, your covered
- BROIL any type of meat you fancy, or salmon

- DEHYDRATE for healthy food options
Another clever feature is the visual display on the door which provides correct rack positions so that you get the optimum results and don’t need to guess where the food item needs to be placed.
Apart from the amazing versatility of this appliance, the unwavering consistency is what makes it so special. Anytime you roast, broil, cook or bake anything, you can rely on the exact temperature time and time again. You want that!
You want to know that every time you bake a birthday cake, you can use the pre-set temperature and you will get the same results. The Breville BOV900BSS is one of the most dependable items you will have in your kitchen, let alone your home.
Element IQ technology
The reason for such consistency is because of the Element IQ technology. The Breville designers have created this appliance enabling you to send power to the right area in the oven with the exact right temperature.
This is done by the 6 independent quartz heating elements, which move the power where it is most needed for fast and even cooking. The elements allow you to cook both above and below the food whilst reducing cooking time by 30%.
In other words, you can cook your food in the best heat possible from the inside out or the outside in. This is where it is far superior to a microwave which generally cooks only from the inside out.
Specifications of the Smart Oven Air
Despite its internal supersize, specifically 1 cubic foot can fit inside, think a 14 pound turkey, the Breville BOV900BSS still fits neatly onto a kitchen countertop.
Its dimensions are:
- Height = 13 inches
- Width = 21 inches
- Depth = 18 inches
There is no downside to this super smart oven and if you are in the market for a space saving appliance that does all the things, you cannot go wrong with this Breville BOV900BSS counter top oven.
Can you tell I am a fan of the Breville BOV900BSS?
Yes, this Smart Oven Air review could almost be a pure homage to the Breville designers because they have truly outclassed themselves and the competition with this appliance. If you are looking for an extra large countertop oven that will ensure you cook perfect meals and snacks each and every time, you won’t go wrong with the Breville BOV900BSS toaster oven.
